Bob Dylan - "Tight Connection To My Heart" lyrics

Come gather round people wherever you roam
And admit that the waters around you have grown
And accept it that soon youll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth saving
Then youd better start swimming or youll sink like a stone

For the times, they are a-changin

Come writers and critics who prophesize with your pens
And keep your eyes wide, the chance wont come again
And dont speak too soon, for the wheels still in spin
And theres no telling who that its naming
For the loser now will be later to win
For the times, they are a-changin

Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call
Dont stand in the doorway, dont block up the halls
For he that gets hurt will be he that has stalled
Theres a battle outside and its raging
Itll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times, they are a-changin

Come mothers and fathers all over the land
And dont criticize what you cant understand
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly aging
Please get out of the new one if you cant lend a hand
For the times they are a-changin

The line, it is drawn, the curse, it is cast
The slow one will later be fast
And the present now will soon be the past
The order is rapidly fading
The first one now will later be last
For the times, they are a-changin
